Type in hidradenitis Suppurativa and celiac disease or gluten intolerance. You'll find plenty of information on these sites. For some people, gluten alone, when removed from the diet, cures the problem. For others, milk products and gluten cure it and other both plus other foods. For others they get a lot of relief, but not a total cure. Some people get relief, but have slight flares around the time of their periods. The immune system is obviously involved. Type in nutrient deficiencies and HS and see if supplements plus the above diet might help. I sincerely hope this helps. Keep looking for answers.
Hidradenitis suppurativa is a skin disease that affects areas bearing apocrine sweat glands and hair follicles; such as the underarms, groin and buttocks esp in women.
Apply warm compresses on the lumps and keep the area clean. Topical antiseptic treatment and topical antibiotics such as mupirocin or neomycin containing ointment is very useful.If still the lumps persist then specific treatment like antibiotics, vit A supplements, corticosteroid injections, isotretinoin, antiandrogens and sometimes excision and drainage ,laser therapy and radiotherapy are found useful. I feel that you should consult a dermatologist and discuss these options with him.
